One of the most beautiful penthouse homes to appear on the market in years! Stunningly renovated, this duplex penthouse with 3 outdoor spaces is a rare offering.
Off a private landing one enters into a dramatic nearly square living room with 13 foot soaring ceilings, new white oak French parquet patterned floors and a wood burning fireplace. This amazing room has three exposures, including 2 large picture windows facing South. Off the East side of the living room is a huge terrace perfect for lounging, with open Eastern exposures, a large awning and beautiful plantings. Off the West side of the living room is a large South West facing terrace, perfect for cooking and dining.
Also included on this floor of the home is a large windowed wet bar with refrigerator, sink and dishwasher and a new windowed powder room.
Down the elegant curved staircase on the lower level are the new gourmet kitchen, dining area and 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The brand new open chef's kitchen is like a piece of art and is both functional and beautiful, open to the dining area. The kitchen and dining area have Southern exposures with great light and a wrap planting terrace. Off of the kitchen and dining area is a spacious pantry and washer/dryer. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. The master bedroom has endless closet space, a classic white bathroom, and a bright Eastern exposure and access to the wrap planting terrace. The second bedroom has a renovated stone bathroom with large glass shower.
Both floors of this special home have access to the elevator, so one can come home on either floor, and have guests enter on either floor. Warm, inviting and truly iconic, this apartment is a real treasure.
